Printing Issues with Epson LQ-570e via licensed VMWare Workstation 12.5
Posted on 2016-10-05
We currently run Windows 10 workstations. I have Windows 7 Pro 32-bit VMs running a legacy 32-bit version of R:Base. We are migrating to True ERP but need to continue running R:Base as we are experiencing implementation problems. The R:Base app prints to legacy dot-matrix Epson LQ-570e printers for multi-page forms. I've been using a batch file using the Net Use command and it has been working fine. But for some odd reason which I cannot diagnose, no one can print to their respective printers anymore. The printers are attached directly to the users' workstation via centronix-to-usb adapter connection.
Sample text from a .bat file:
net use LPT1 /delete
net use LPT1 \\monica-vm\epsonlq
Thanks in advance for your help!
